Not long ago, Converse introduced their First String program in an effort to highlight quality craftsmanship amongst some of their classic styles and silhouettes and going by the first few releases, they have certainly achieved their goals. The latest release from this program comes in the form of a Converse favorite, the Jack Purcell, but in a new variation. This iteration of the shoe comes in a high top featuring a front zipper in addition to laces enabling the wearer to secure their feet into places using either, or both. The Converse Jack Purcell Zipper High comes in two colors: black and milk, and they will be available in limited numbers at First String accounts sometime this month.
